ELSEN, LUA LEAD FIELD AT FUTURE LEGENDS

Leaders are the only players to shoot sub-par rounds

 

Wales, Wis. – Jordan Elsen of Kenosha, Wis., fired a 2-under-par 69 to take the lead in the Boys Division of the Future Legends on Tuesday.  In the Girls Division, Tiffany Lua of Rowland Heights, Calif., sits at the top of the leaderboard after carding a 1-under-par round of 70.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Future Legends is a 54-hole stroke play event being held at The Legend at Brandybrook. The tournament features 64 boys and 21 girls, ages 12-18, from 14 states, including 31 from Wisconsin.

Elsen was pleased with his steady round, which featured a 34 on the front nine and a 35 on the back side with six birdies and four bogeys.

“I think my course management was really on today,” he said.  “I just did my routine, picked the right line and found the hole.”

Elsen contributed his solid play to his driver, with which he had been struggling recently, and his putter.  He finished strong with birdies on Nos. 15, 16 and 17, a run that included holing out from the bunker on the par-3 16th.

Kyle Parsons of Wethersfield, Conn., stands alone in second place with an even-par 71.  Tied for third with 1-over-par 72s are Joe Kinney of Antioch, Ill., and A.J. Olson of White Bear Lake, Minn.  Peter Lucey of Winnetka, Ill., and JD Seymour of Naperville, Ill., are tied for fifth with 2-over-par 73s.

Lua, 14, also felt that course management was key to her round, which consisted of a 32 on the front nine a 38 on the back side.

“I knew I had to be careful out there today,” Lua said.  “I had to pay attention to the greens, because they have a lot of subtle breaks and are easy to three-putt.”

Lua’s strategy paid off as she needed only 25 putts on her round.  She found her stroke early on the first hole, where she put her approach shot in the greenside bunker and made a 20-footer to save par. 

In second place is Emily Johnson of Warsaw, Ind., with a 3-over-par 74.  Jennie Arseneault of Grinnell, Iowa, stands alone in third after carding a 4-over-par 75.
